FUBACON 2016: Rise of the Primitive Bots! Open Build Session

We are pleased to announce our second annual hilariously fun robot sumo contest. No experience necessary. 

Come to our open build session.  Bring junk to upcycle or use the junk we provide. Help will be on hand too. 

Make a wildly fun creation that’s ready to battle with one-on-one in the tournament with registration starting at 3 and the battles starting at 3:30.  Fee to register is $20 per competing robot.

We will have two divisions (Primitive & Low-Tech). Winners of each division will compete for the Grand Championship. 

PRIMITIVE : Creations that move on its own without any control from its human counterpart. Does not use any microcontrollers or sensors.

LOW-TECH: Creations that can be controlled by their human counterpart and employ technology beyond a simple battery and vibration motor e.g. a microcontroller.

There will also be a People’s Choice Winner where participants and spectators can vote on their favorite creation.  So feel free to let your imagination run wild.

Restrictions:
1. Robots should be no more than 15 in x 8 in and weigh less than 2 lbs.
2. Should spend no more than $30.00 on your base toy.
3. No destructive elements (e.g. saw blades or drills).
4. Keep it family friendly.
